Unfortunately, the current news background is not so influential as it was before. If earlier, just information about a minor partnership could push the price of a coin to the moon, today, even cooperation with Nasdaq does not affect the market.
Today, Ripple partnered with one of the world’s largest money providers: Ria Money Transfer, a subsidiary of Euronet Worldwide. However, this news did not affect the price change as well.
Against all this, Ripple has even lost its positions, as the capitalization has decreased by around $150 million.
